Publisher's Summary

Before he died, Felix Castor's fellow exorcist John Gittings made several calls asking for help, and if Castor had answered them, John might still be alive. So when a smooth-talking lawyer comes out of nowhere to claim the remains, Castor owes it to John's unhappy ghost - and even more unhappy widow - to help out. If only life were that simple.
A brutal murder in King's Cross bears all the hallmarks of an American serial killer supposedly 40 years dead, and it takes more good sense than Castor possesses not to get involved.
He's also fighting a legal battle over the body - if not the soul - of his possessed friend, Rafi, and he can't shake the feeling that his three problems are related. With the help of the succubus Juliet, paranoid zombie data-fence Nicky Heath, and a little judicious digging, Castor just might have a chance of fitting the pieces together before someone drops him down an elevator shaft or rips his throat out. Or not.


What the Critics Say

"Every bit as good as the better-known Jim Butcher, Carey hits his stride with his third hard-boiled supernatural thriller." (Publishers Weekly)

Faint hints of a British Dresden

What three words best describe Michael Kramer’s voice?

unauthentic, charismatic, sardonic

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If only life permitted such a thing!

Any additional comments?

I am beginning to think that Fix has to be one of the best male protagonists in urban fantasy. 'Tis true that Dresden is still at #1 but Fix is running a close second. Mr Carey has solidified his world in this book and our somewhat flawed protagonist continues to 'grow'. I loved this outing of Mr Castor and can't wait to get my hands on the next one. Highly recommended.

Once again Fix battles demons, weres and ghosts, as well as ever day human psychos in his own inimitable and reluctant way. Sometimes selfish, often lazy and occasionally guilt-ridden, our hero's efforts to help the widow of an old friend and fellow exorcist lead him in to danger. Thank heavens (or should that be hell?) for the delicious scary Juliet, a succubus trying hard to give up her soul sucking ways and a great character.

If you have read the preceding Felix Castor books and enjoyed his dry outlook you will not be disappointed.
